Let’s Take A Moment Day 34

Hi everyone.  Hope you are all well and continue to stay that way during this global health crisis we are facing.  But in addition to protecting your physical wellness, what are you doing to stay mentally healthy today?

I know we are in a serious situation, but I need a break from the gloom, doom and bullying by way of hoarding. Music has always been my refuge and watching those beautiful Italians singing to each other from their balconies reaffirmed my belief that music is the answer. So until the old normal returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day.  And if this helps anyone else, even better.

When 1990 began, it was not just a new decade for the world, but a new chance for a legendary singer from another era to reintroduce himself to the music industry.  First, he reunited with his former pianist.  Then the singer hired his son as his manager and he landed his father appearances on the late night shows, music television stations and concerts around the country sponsored by alternative radio stations to help introduce his father’s music to a whole new audience.  The plan worked.  By the time the singer’s new record, “Astoria: Portrait of the Artist” was released in February 1990, it was embraced by everyone who loved his music, including old fans like me.  This is my favorite song from that album.

I do not own the rights to anything.  I am just sharing what I love and how I am coping with you.

Stay well.
